Lake County's recent heavy rainfall could lead to localized drainage issues. That's why the Lake County Stormwater Section and the Adopt-a-Lake Program are reminding residents to keep their storm drains clean to help prevent flooding.

Storm drains are designed to channel excess precipitation, in the form of runoff, away from the road and into the stormwater system. Blocked storm drains cannot remove enough water from the roadway, causing localized flooding.

According to the Lake County Stormwater Section, leaves, mulch and grass clippings in stormwater runoff can also increase nutrient loading, which negatively impacts water quality in lakes and streams. Worse yet, pet waste, antifreeze, and oil all have the potential to be discharged to water bodies when it rains.

The Lake County Stormwater Sections is asking citizens to remember the slogan "Only rain down the storm drain" and to follow these tips to help maintain clean storm drains: For more information about stormwater, contact the Lake County Stormwater Section at 352-253-9084 or visit keyword: stormwater.
